The Continental Connection plane that crashed Thursday near Buffalo gyrated wildly out of control in the seconds before it fell to the ground and burst into flames, federal accident investigators said Sunday.
Flight 3407's nose whipped upward as if the plane was on a roller coaster, then shot down toward the ground, said National Transportation Safety Board member Steven Chealander. Its wings were rocking so violently that the plane was nearly upside down for a moment, Chealander said.
